Henry Suspended By Monaco

Monaco have suspended under-fire manager Thierry Henry ahead of a decision on his coaching future

Thierry Henry retains Monaco's full backing, sources close to the club have told ESPN FC, despite a disastrous start to his managerial career that has seen him win only two times in his first 12 league matches.

According to L'Équipe, the current "suspension" Thierry Henry is under at Monaco will become permanent and the club has already lined up his replacement: Leonardo Jardim - again.

However, Monaco have won just two of their twelve Ligue 1 matches under Henry, and last weekend's 5-1 defeat to Strasbourg left them 19th in the table, three points adrift of safety.

Their previous game there resulted in a awful 5-1 league defeat to Strasbourg, meaning Monaco have not won at home since May last season.

Henry, 41, played for Monaco for five seasons, winning a league title with them in 1997.

Henry was appointed on 18 October with the mission of leading Monaco away from danger, after Leonardo Jardim had been sacked with the club mired in the relegation zone. He insulted a Strasbourg player and there were arguments with some of the media. "We're in a critical situation, unfortunately that hasn't changed", Henry said at a news conference earlier Thursday. "We're going to war", he said.




"We need guys who want to save the club, who don't think about themselves".

Monaco have suspended manager Thierry Henry with immediate effect pending a final decision on his future.

Henry's spell at Monaco suggests that Villa dodged a bullet - more by the luck of him snubbing the job than their own judgement - and they are much better off in the more experienced hands of Smith.

Vieira's OGC Nice are now eighth in Ligue 1, six points off the Champions League places and 16 points above Monaco.

Their only chance of a trophy this season is in the League Cup, where they will face En Avant Guingamp in the semi-finals next week.
